The paralysis of addiction

This editorial’s central goal is to inspire an unrelenting fear and deep seated anguish amongst young people. Addiction is a real and salient problem plaguing this pitiful race, called homo sapiens. Being addicted to gambling is ok. However cigarettes, booze, hard drugs such as PCP also known as angel dust, Special K, retail, sex, and the Twilight Series need immediate attention.

I, like in most cases, am not above addiction.

“In medical terminology, an addiction is a chronic neurobiologic disorder that has genetic, psychosocial, and environmental dimensions and is characterized by one of the following: the continued use of a substance despite its detrimental effects, impaired control over the use of a drug (compulsive behavior), and preoccupation with a drug’s use for non-therapeutic purposes (i.e. craving the drug). Addiction is often accompanied by the presence of deviant behaviors (for instance stealing money and forging prescriptions) that are used to obtain a drug.”- Wiki-what-pedia

With a habitue, it is not uncommon to find them slave to more than one substance. A different day, a different poison.

In the name of education, I will admit my shortcomings and try to explain what is occupying 70% of my brain activity currently. Yes it’s Oh!s cereal. I love the creative substitution of an exclamation point in lieu of an apostrophe. Apostrophes are so yawn.

I was able to quit cereal in college, but this bad boy found his way back in to my home. And my sticky paw won’t keep finding its way down that deep dark hole of the this Quaker Oats product box.  The bite of the great taste of graham and real golden honey doesn’t only allow me to have a delicious morning, but a delicious noon and night.
